I missed this a couple weeks ago when it was announced at GDC 2011, but I'm so excited to hear that "Out of this World" is coming to iOS.
I loved "Out of this World"/"Another World" so much! It's one of the few games I've ever completed, in fact, because I never got tired of its puzzles and the gorgeous graphics. I'm looking forward to playing it again.
"Friday" is exactly what you expect from teen-oriented pop in 2011, from the sing-song melodies on down to a guest spot from an anonymous rapper who's only tangentially related to the rest of the song. If the video was intended to be a parody of teen pop convention, it would be on par with some of the best SNL Digital Shorts by Lonely Island.
I had exactly the same reaction when I first watched "Friday" last Saturday: that this was pretty much a genius pop music parody (the "Baby"-aping chorus, the "Bus stop" sign over her head as she sings "bus stop", the bit of rapping in the middle, and so on). And as grating as it is (there's something about listening to it that feels like chewing on aluminum foil), that's how I prefer to think of it!
